Public Persecution Service

The role of the Queen as Head of State was further eroded yesterday as the Government announced plans to drop the word Crown from the Crown Prosecution Service, without consulting Buckingham Palace.

For the third time in less than a year the Queen's ministers chose not to pay her the courtesy of consultation, but rather kept her in the dark until just before reforms were announced.


I am no fervent Royalist, but their is something disquieting about the current Governments lack of respect for form.
